no spool like spool. not an actual locking/unlocking diff like a loc-rite or a detroit. but a real spool. i haven't found one yet but heard iron pig makes something so i'll call them tomorrow

spool

We have mini spools that we actually make for a different application that we have installed in cruiser diffs. The splines fit a bit tight, but it is an inexpensive and strong alternative to welding the diff.

my question would be .. a re you really sure you wanna run a spool ?

Yes sir I am. It's going in the rear of my buggy. When I wheeled my jeep I always ran the rear locker engaged the whole time. Since this will be a trail only rig I see no adverse effects. Sure I could run an arb to help with turning, but for the price I can run a driveline disconnect and cutting brakes and turn even easier.
